"I cannot recommend the Lowry enough as a wedding venue. The compass room is absolutely stunning and made our day just perfect. So many guests commented on how amazing the room was!! The staff were outstanding, Lucy, Greer & Tracy especially, along with all of the bar/waiting on staff who were all great too! I cannot recommend them enough!!"
Cat and Lee


"We had our wedding day & night here on the 29th of February 2020. From the initial chat with Lucy back in Feb 2019 to the last orders of the evening it was perfect. Lucy cannot do enough for you and is very calm. Beautiful settings and views in the evening and during the day. We were worried about how we would navigate the place, however, on the day there were signs everywhere and, as the bride, one of the ladies (Tracey) took me everywhere that I needed to be. The food and drink was to a very high standard. It was delicious - again, everyone liked the food. The whole day was perfect. The "Turn around" from day to night was flawless. I don't know how they managed to do it so quickly and exactly how we wanted it. If you are looking for some where beautiful from start to finish and a helpful, friendly and knowledgeable wedding team then I cannot recommend The Lowry as a wedding venue highly enough."
Karin and Dave


"We had our wedding here and the compass room was the most perfect setting for both the ceremony and wedding breakfast/evening. Lucy put in so much hard work to make sure everything went smoothly and it went off without a single issue and Tracy, Greer and the rest of their team were brilliant throughout the day, working tirelessly behind the scenes, were super friendly and made sure we had the most amazing day. Couldn’t recommend a wedding venue more highly and also thought it was great value compared with other venues we’d seen."
Beth and Josh


"We celebrated our wedding at The Lowry on 28th December 2019. As soon as reached out to the venue at the start of the planning we knew we had picked a great venue. Lucy, the wedding coordinator responded quickly and informatively and had lots of ideas for our big day. There were lots of options to choose from to really make the day your own.  We held our ceremony in the Hexagon room, drinks in the pier 8 room and then wedding breakfast in the marvellous Compass room. All were decorated fantastically and the staff moved our flowers and decorations to the different room. The food was fantastic from the canapés to the 3 course meal and evening buffet. Lucy and the 2 event managers on the day, Conny and Bridget, ensured the day and night ran smoothly and contacted all our suppliers including band and florist to ensure the correct timings. Overall we are 100% happy and had the best day."
Jen and Matt


"The whole experience, from our initial viewing at a wedding fair in November 2017, through to our ‘Big Day’ on 29th December 2019, was made so easy by the confident organisation of Lucy Markey and her team. Every query, no matter how small, was treated with respect and given careful consideration.

We chose the elegant Hexagon Room (with fabulous views across the Quays) for our ceremony and the simply stunning Compass Room for our evening Reception. The rooms could not have been more perfect and the fairy lights made the Compass Room look really special. Our decorations were laid out perfectly to our instructions in both rooms. A slight change of plan meant we also used the Pier 8 room for our drinks reception and even though this was not our first choice, the team made the room look fantastic. Also on the day, the team were quick to solve minor errors and helped the bridal party ease into the ceremony. The food was absolutely wonderful and the Manchester Tart was to die for!

The Lowry has always been one of our favourite places in Salford and there are many spectacular photo opportunities - both inside and out. Our guests loved the venue and couldn’t believe how amazing it was.

We must have chosen the busiest time of year but the hustle and bustle of theatre goers didn’t distract from our special day.

Overall the experience was amazing and we highly recommend The Lowry for weddings without reservation."
Janine and Joe


"We would both like to send our sincerest thank you to yourself and your team! Our day was honestly perfect from start to finish we could not have asked for better. What a wonderful venue you have. All our guests commented how beautiful it is and how it was the best wedding they have been to. "
Linzi & Hayden


"Amazing day!!! Truly perfect.

A huge thank you to you and all involved for making the day so special. Some of the suppliers said the staff were the best of any venue they've been to. Guests said it was a stunning location. Thank you so much again."
Sean & Kiren


"We really had the best day ever. Everything went perfect. The staff at the Lowry were all wonderful, kind, hardworking and nothing was too much trouble! Can't fault the day or night. The food was perfect for us too. The organisation was spot on from the start through to the end. Really well done. "
Lyndsey & Dave


"From the moment we came to look around The Lowry we knew this was the venue we wanted. We were made to feel like our custom was valued and that continued throughout our booking. Jenny has been really helpful and always responded and reassured us in the build up to our day. We really enjoyed our wedding at The Lowry and would recommend it to people in the future. They day went perfectly and the event managers on the day were great. Thank you to everyone involved who helped us make our special day perfect."
Paula & Dave


"The wedding and event co-ordinators planned for every eventuality and bent over backwards to accomodate our every request. I cannot recommend this venue enough. If you want the wow factor, combined with value and exceptional service then you have to consider The Lowry"
Alexandra & James


"People had told us how stressful arranging weddings can be, but ours was easy and that really is down to you and your team. We would really have no hesitation in recommending The Lowry to anyone looking for a wedding venue"
Margaret & Sean


"We want to thank you and the team for all your help. We really couldn't have asked for any more. The care, advice and attention that you provided was exceptional. When I talk to friends who are planning weddings it is clear that they are not being assisted in the same way as we were by you"
Laura & Tony


"I just wanted to thank you so much, it all exceeded my expectations, everything was perfect - we had an amazing day. Everyone has been raving about the venue and how lovely and attentive all the staff were. We can't thank you enough!"
